What's Going On Here?
There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.

Too Old for Beanie Babies
Beanie Baby fad was after my time as a stuffed animal collector. But I do remember how popular they were. The Great Beanie Baby Bubble: Mass Delusion and the Dark Side of Cute, has a great title. Ty Warner sounds like an interesting and complicated man. And after reading the book, even though he did a lot of damage to people. It's the whole thing "money can't buy happiness" but who can deny it makes life easier, right?
